I know there is a posts about the protests last night, but I am watching Fox News and they are showing live that a black man has been shot in the
crowd and is lying unconscious. Protestors still in the area and it looks like it is getting more violent.
Protestors yelling at fox reporter and one took his mic. Looting being confirmed.
One dead due to his aggressive actions and another wounded. Lots of looting, a few Molotov cocktails, tear gas, percussion grenades, and crowds of
thieves covering their faces and taking what they can, including attempting to drag off ATM machines.
This is no way to make their point regarding peace, but it's a heck of a way to start a race war.
Guest on Fox says he doesn't condone rioting, but understands it. he then says (and this is unbelievable to me) that the cops are antagonizing the
protestors! Another guest says its not protesting its a riot. The first guy says the cops have no business trying to interfere.
For god sakes someone in the crowd has been shot and died (or at least is seriously hurt), and this scum bag is saying that the police have no right
to intervene. This is insanity!!
I have the feeling that tonight's protestors were bussed in by some of the agitator groups. they arrived too late for the genuine, original anger
outbursts last night, but since they traveled so far, and the TV crews are still there, why not?
Don't you think the presence of Television and the bright lights, makes these "protests" more violent? When the Milwaukee police chief barred them
from getting too close, the protestors quit protesting and went home.
This is horribly sad. I've been to Charlotte several times and only had wonderful experiences. As a young white male living in the south, I visit
Charlotte every so often. I can't begin to tell you how hospitable this city is, no matter what color you are or the people you encounter.
That being said I think that leaders are to blame here for the many "organizations" promoting this behavior. These are people that care about their
community (minus the looters and those taking violent action) and have been manipulated and exploited by those with a political agenda.
Please everyone keep the thoughts of those lost, injured and their families. And remember the chaos we all live in.
